Bring on the festivities and hang the decorations!

Goodbye to Another Season!

Wait! Why are we rushed to decorate for Christmas ( I will not say the holiday…it’s too soon!) before Thanksgiving? I want to enjoy my rustic-colored-leaves and ribbons with my non-jack-o-lantern-faced pumpkins scattered around. Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow stand guard next to a harvested bushel of wheat and pumpkins…on my accent table. ( they are so cute and small!). The Harvest table runner, draped over the chair, is ready to occupy the dinning room table. The only red and green showing are in the apples on the counter and the green and red tones already placed on the walls.

Can’t we enjoy this time of year before jumping to the next one!

There is a lot of preparation that still needs to be completed. After all…the Holiday Season is not complete much less in full swing until you have baked more pies, than a family could possibly eat, and have the scent-of-Turkey wafting throughout the house. “Can I get an AMEN?”

Okay…I am stepping off my soapbox! There is just an order that must be followed and the fact that decorations are already… “Oops! My bad!”

Last night we saw another type of season end…It was the last basketball game for my youngest. It was a tight game and at the buzzer the score was 49-50! There were some great shots and not so great shots…but that is what the game is all about! My 20 year old, once again, was the referee for the youngest team last night. There was one little player who began to get upset when he missed every shot. As the game was ending the young boy was suddenly swept up and held over the goal. SWOOSH! “I dunked it!” He said, with the biggest grin spread over his face. He turned around and saw my 20 year old had picked him up to score! Oh the rules that get broken when you’re little! Those kids love my 20 year old and he enjoys that age group…
Monday night we will head back to the gym/church for Awards Night!

So here I go…on to the next task at hand…getting my house ready for THANKSGIVING! Planning the meal and baking the pies…I guess I better make a list! This will be a unique Holiday Season for our little family with the absence of family members but, I will stop there before I can no longer see the keyboard to type. I will close with one more thought as I sip the last of my “morning brew”

Black Friday…we also are full from a huge family dinner and the nap after dinner is to prepare for the early hour shopping…I would vote for longer naps but it doesn’t mean everyone else would see my point of view.

Bring on the cats…

Peach State says: And So It Begins…

20121105-072039.jpg

It’s Monday…the beginning of a new week and the first Monday in a new Month. Not just any month but, November! “So much to do and so little time!” These are the days when people start their “Holiday Rush” and the many countdowns take the place of “OMG…It’s Monday” complaints.

And So It Begins…

I have already begun my various forms of count-downs for the various activities. “I love the feeling of accomplishment and finding shortcuts to completion of my many lists!” But… my health does throw a Proverbial Wrench into the works this year.

Sooo…I conquer what I can before it needs to be done and find room for the “extra-out-of-the-ordinary-must-be-done” items placed on my To-Do lists! (case in point…) The Presidential Election…I, along with my hubby, went to vote this past Wednesday. With his schedule and the hour long commute there was no way he could cast his vote tomorrow. [That is one giant check mark by an item on my list!] School is out tomorrow and I will have plenty of help, hopefully, around the house as I begin my Pre-holiday clean. I will be able to follow the Election Coverage as I check other items off my list. I was thrilled to find an invitation, of sorts, to an exclusive hair salon addressed to me in the mail Saturday. It is for a FREE haircut, hair style and color! “Goody…Goody!” If I plan it right I could have a new hairstyle for the holidays. Calendar in hand…I will carefully navigate the already set-in-stone commitments and book the appointment. “It sounds like a Me-day!” That is just what the doctor ordered…well not in so many words but…with the increase of medical appointments mixed in with the standard everyday events I sure do like the sound of an almost “Spa Day”…wouldn’t you?

My day is in full swing now with the exiting of my hubby and my youngest. I will finish my chat with you as I finish my coffee and pull out my calendar of event and checklist. “I wonder if I spend to much time and energy on planning?” (insert silent giggle)

Have a great day!
